Enjoy a great day of photographing birds of prey in flight with photographer Peter Gatt.

Raptors in Flight

Excellent opportunity to add unique images to your Portfolio!

Join us on Sunday February 26th 2017 for an exciting and rewarding day of photographing raptors in flight.

Hone your photographic skills and build your portfolio at the same time with flight images and close up portraits of a Bald Eagle, Snowy Owl, Barn Owl, Peregrine Falcon and possibly a Turkey Vulture.

Our session with the birds will be a 3 hours in length that includes at least 6 different birds of prey to photograph. This time of year they will have many babies on hand, so I'm sure we will have some amazing photographic opportunities.

You will also be able to photograph other birds of prey and their chicks on their perch while waiting before the shoot and after the shoot.

We will be heading to the Canadian Raptor Conservancy (CRC) to photograph birds of prey during flying demonstrations and in natural settings.

The Canadian Raptor Conservancy main focus is educating the general public about Birds of Prey and their importance in our natural world.

The trainers at the CRC will be flying the birds back and forth until we get the shots, or until the bird get tired. You will be guaranteed great shots of birds of prey perched and some amazing shots of birds in flight.

Equipment

A telephoto lens 100-300 is a good focal length.
Faster is better (f/2.8 is ideal)
Bring tripods for the static shots.
